I had installed Java 8, tomcat 8.5.12 and geoserver 2.11.2. When i restarted the tomcat and navigate to localhost:8080/geoserver it is giving me 404 error

The origin server did not find a current representation for the target resource or is not willing to disclose that one exists.

When i checked in tomcat logs,

29-Aug-2017 04:32:35.595 SEVERE [ContainerBackgroundProcessor[StandardEngine[Catalina]]] org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext.startInternal One or more listeners failed to start. Full details will be found in the appropriate container log file
29-Aug-2017 04:32:35.596 SEVERE [ContainerBackgroundProcessor[StandardEngine[Catalina]]] org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext.startInternal Context [/geoserver] startup failed due to previous errors

Any idea what is causing this error?

    Can you show more of the tomcat log esp. the lines before the severe error occured? Maybe it gives some hint about what happened. – ylka Aug 29 '17 at 7:27
